In the last 24 hours, Epic Games made a strong verdict against the cheaters, XXiF and his friends. Meanwhile, Microsoft announced to release an Xbox One S console exclusively for the Fortnite players. Lastly, FoRze signed a new player for the Qualifiers of the Fortnite World Cup.
XXiF and friends banned!
Epic Games punished Damien XXiF Cook, who was suspected of colluding with other participants in the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers. The tournament organizers banned the offender for 14 days. The same punishment was also announced for Bad and Wuji and Gestyy, who helped Cook to score points during qualifiers last weekend.
XXiF denies the act of fraud, though he acknowledged that he is familiar with Bad and Wuji and Gestyy. Rise Nation’s player claims to know a lot of the players competing in the qualifiers and said he regularly meets with them in official matches and LAN tournaments. According to XXiF, he did not anticipate that Bad and Wuji and Gestyy would land where he initially landed and would end up getting killed off so easily. He believes that they did this controversial act because they are fans of his stream.
Epic Games Commission conducted an investigation into the incident and decided to punish all three participants in the episode. Players will be suspended from tournament competitions for 14 days. The organizers also took away the XXiF slot at the Fortnite World Cup, which he won after that controversial qualifying game.
Xbox For Fortnite lovers!
Microsoft is preparing to release a new edition of the Xbox One S console, exclusive for the Fortnite fans. This was reported by an insider Roland Quandt on Twitter.
According to Quandt, the main difference between the Xbox One S Fortnite Special Edition will be the purple color. The console will be equipped with a 1 TB hard drive and will cost $ 300. When it becomes available is yet to be known.
Yes, take this with a grain of salt.
No, it's not the bundle that's been available for a while now.

Earlier, Microsoft has already released Xbox One S with bonuses for Fortnite. The bonuses included skins and 2 thousand V Bucks. Quandt claims that the bundle of the purple version for Fortnite fans will be different from the white one.

In December 2018, forZe announced it was leaving the competitive landscape of Fortnite, but in March the club returned and announced two teams. The organization recruited “FiveSoon” and “Sunsh1n9”, as well as “Toose” and “Azze”. However, all of these four players were recently removed from the team owing to their bad performance. Now the Russian side put its faith on new players.
